- ALL - Kernkrach -



Artist : Hoffnung & Psyche 

Label : Kernkrach 

untitled / 7"

Minimal-synth wave from Germany. Hoffnung & Psyche is some of the greatest minimal-synth sound in a low-fi style. Songs taken from a cassette only album recorded in the years 81-82. A-side : "Sie bleibt kalt" absolutely fantastic sound with girl vocals that remains the best of Anne Clark compositions with Stefan on keybords (also member of Frohliche Eiszeit). Strange almost pop-song ! B-side : "das Auto" is a surprising instrumental track which sounds like Der Plan. Very cool and recommended ! Record limited to 315 copies with spray painted, handsewn cloth sleeve with one of a kind photo attached ! TIP



Artist : Guyer's Connection 

Label : Kernkrach 

untitled / LP

Tibor Csebits and Philippe Alioth from Switzerland were approximately less than 18 years old when they released the self-produced LP album "Portrait" in 1983, which is one of the most wanted old-electro releases nowadays. This new release on the German electro-freak label Kernkrach is a collection of wonderful vintage-electro songs from 1982 to 1984, taken from old 4-track tapes that have been rediscovered per chance. This LP is released in a strictly limited edition (300 copies) and sold out every where so you'd better be fast !

captain berlin


Artist : Peter Synthetik 

Label : Kernkrach 

captain berlin / 12"

This 12” is the 80's soundtrack for a short Super 8 format film by Jörg Buttgereit. There are 3 versions of the same song, entitled "Captain Berlin". The original version (1982) is a nice piece of pulsating minimalism and will attract a good crowd on the dancefloor. There is also a live version (1984), which is a little harsher and more monotonous, somewhat like early DAF. The B-side is filled with a twelve minutes long remix from 1983. Captain Berlin is a nice cult piece like you can expect from Kernkrach, limited to 500 copies !

the sound of geri reig


Artist : Various 

Label : Kernkrach 

the sound of geri reig / LP

Things are developing really nicely with this new complilation 'The Sound Of Geri Reig'. For the 1st time the original recordings of the musical style later coined 'Geri Reig' have been pressed in vinyl grooves. Not only are we going to hear the music of pre-Der Plan sets such as Weltaufstandsplan and Die Karmann Ghias, but also what happened on the other side of the planet simultaneously. From San José (aka 'The Pit'), the tunes of the prehistoric new-wave singers and other groups will complete the archives of home-made experimental para-pop music from the late 70's. Jump on your copy as this compilation has been published in a very small edition of 500 copies on 180gr coloured vinyl orange-black marbled, hardcover sleeve, hand numbered. Prices are predicted by Goldman Sachs to shoot the roof once sold out ;)

au revoir 1978-1981


Artist : Les Invalides 

Label : Kernkrach 

au revoir 1978-1981 / LP

In late 1978, 3 young Parisian students, crossed their way and passion regarding electronic music and analogue synthesizers. They formed a band, which popped up a few years ago named and now already known as Les Invalides. Because of health restrictions of one of the major members just only a few tracks has been recorded during their 3 year musical periode. After the death of Albert in 1981 the band dissolved and their musical content lost. The mini-LP 'Au Revoir 1978-1981' contains original versions and unreleased material, rescued and mastered from the original tapes. Essential !!

east side of heaven


Artist : Element 104 

Label : Kernkrach 

east side of heaven / 7"

If you thought that synth-pop was dead nowadays then Element 104 are surely the ones to lift the genre from its supposed grave. Busting their meandering electro-vocal charms out on Kernkrach (Heinz Stelte's long-running imprint), the trio offer 2 driving dancefloor cuts with utterly memorable lyrics and one hell of a guitar riff, the former sounding like it's come straight out of an 80's pulp B-movie, and the latter heading down more psychedelic territories in the company of metallic drum machines and that neo-romantic swagger. Lovely stuff from this cult American 80's band for the 1st time on vinyl. Rocking synth-pop / electronic new-wave limited to 250 hand numbered copies..
